Gloria and Charlene,
And into one's life comes a calming and knowing force; that was my Aunt Elsie. She could sooth my anxious heart and affirm that all was well. I will forever love her and her pan-fried pork chops!
My heart is with you both, I love you to the moon and back:)

Hey Rick, We are so sorry for your loss, Elsie was a Sweetheart and I'm sure she has left the oxygen bottle behind and is resting now with the Big Guy In The Sky. May you and your family be at peace knowing she will never be in pain again.
